About the Program
As businesses continue to evolve and work with increasingly complex
technology, the need for advanced training and professional
certification becomes more important every day.
Office professionals are the core of most businesses. Without
competent assistants, executive administrators, bookkeepers, and office
managers, most companies would be unable to function. Office
professionals keep the office organized and running smoothly and work
with much of the valuable data that a company needs to flourish.
The Professional Studies in Office Administration Certificate was
created for the individual who is already working in an office setting
and wants to apply new learning to the workplace. It provides an
opportunity to upgrade your present skills and acquire new competencies.
This is a program designed specifically with the working office
professional in mind. This certificate offers a flexible “menu” approach
to course selection to enhance your professional development. Choose
from 3 to 9 credits from each category – communications, office
management or technology. A total of 18 credits is required.
Careers and Job Outlook
Opportunities will continue to be best for those office and
administrative support worker supervisors and managers who show
leadership and team building skills, and who are able to multitask,
communicate well, and keep abreast of technological advances.
State of Michigan average yearly earnings is $32,700.
